I tried this at the weekend and was very surprised it was delicious. - 14 Sep 2010
Very nice indeed, is easy to make and tastes nearly as good as my mum's. I especially liked the fact that there was no base. My mum used to add a handful of raisins to the cream cheese mixture, I am going to try this next time. Will definitely make this case again. - 22 Aug 2014
I'm just making this cake for a church sale after making it for work and after extremely positive feedback from everyone I can only recommend this. Being German I am proud to say that this enters the league with my mums and grandmas :-) Super easy and fast too! Try it!! - 07 Feb 2014
